Join us in welcoming Miranda Rokes, Knox Design Strategy’s new UX/UI Designer! Our team is thrilled to introduce you to Miranda, who possesses a rare combination of skill sets that will serve our legal and professional services clients during their business growth and brand development. 

From a young age, Miranda knew design would be a part of her life. While pursuing her Industrial Design degree at Iowa State, she was drawn to the world of digital products and design. In opposition to her experiences with physical product design, the digital realm allowed Miranda more creative flexibility and freedom. As she developed design skills through class and freelance work, she learned to appreciate the short timeline and big impact of professionally executed user experiences and interfaces.

“I loved the immediacy of impact. When designing, say, a piece of furniture, there are so many timelines to consider. The design and execution of a physical product can take months or years. However, when I was working on web design, an interface, or a digital product, I could take an idea and translate it for myself or a client right away. It offered an opportunity to be creative, flexible, and adaptable in a way that physical design was not.” 

After earning her Industrial Design degree, Miranda decided to follow her dream of living in New York City. Not one to wait around for opportunities to find her, she set off for the Big Apple while still completing her professional certificate in user experience design. After working as a freelance web and product designer, she joined Knox Design in 2023 as a UX/UI Designer.

Miranda’s background in industrial design serves as a competitive advantage for Knox Design’s legal and professional services clients – she implements the full scope of great design in her work, from discovery and ideation to product delivery.

“All design really stems from the same processes. From discovery, we define the problem, ideate, prototype, test, and deliver. I have always been really fascinated with that process and it’s clear that Knox does it exceptionally well. Being able to collaborate, brainstorm, and work hard to find the right solution for a client is a great way to practice the craft.” 

At Knox Design Strategy, Miranda now serves both the team and our clients by connecting leading-edge user experience best practices with beautiful and functional user interfaces. Under the tutelage of our Sr. UX/UI Designer, she collaborates with the larger team to translate the client’s needs to final design solutions across websites, applications, intranets, and more.

“I already love the collaborative nature of the team. Getting to learn from Milton [Knox Design Strategy’s Sr. UX/UI Designer] has been such a pleasure and I’m excited to dive into each of our client projects. Everyone here is a great listener – during the discovery process, you can really see how the team is paying attention to what the clients need and structuring solutions that actually meet those objectives.” 

In collaboration with the rest of the expert team, she’s able to provide clients with digital products that meet her core design philosophy: easy-to-use designs, beautifully executed. Welcome, Miranda!
